Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock is expecting her first child with professional footballer fiancé Andre Gray.

The 29 year old shared gorgeous photos of herself cradling her exposed baby bump in an emerald green dress with her 6.5million Instagram followers.

In one, Black Magic hitmaker Leigh-Anne, looked away from the camera as she rested her hand on the blossoming baby bump.

Watford FC footballer Andre, also 29, joined her for the second image and beamed as he stood behind his fiancée with a hand placed on her bump.

The Shout Out To My Ex hitmaker captioned the adorable post: "We've dreamed about this moment for so long and we can't believe the dream is finally coming true… we can't wait to meet you."

So, as the sweet pair announce their pregnancy, here’s a look back at their relationship timeline…

When did Leigh-Anne meet Andre?

The pair are said to have met back around mid-2016.

Around that time, speaking about a future with the Watford striker, Leigh-Anne told Metro.co.uk: “It’s not something I’ve actually really thought about because we’re always so busy, but it’s in the back of my head.

"If I wasn’t in Little Mix we probably would have started planning already. We’re both really excited so when the time comes, then yeah, we’ll be ready."

Going public

Whilst Andre rarely makes an appearance on Leigh-Anne’s social media, the couple have been known to post the odd adorable snap together.

The pair first went public with their relationship on 29 January 2017, with pop star Leigh-Anne sharing a snap of them together, captioned: “Gonna miss this one,” followed by a broken heart emoji.



Fans of the star were quick to ask who the mysterious man in the photo was, and then Leigh-Anne shared another photo of her footballer boyfriend the month after, writing: “So he hates cheesy captions.. but i'm a cheeseball.. and so is he low-key. but I f***ing love this boy.. my actual [world emoji] miss him too much.”

Proving herself to be very serious about her boyfriend and admitting she loved him, things looked like they were going very well for the loved-up pair.


In the adorable photo, Leigh-Anne can be seen snuggling up to Andre.

In that same year, Andre flew out to the USA to surprise Leigh-Anne while Little Mix were supporting Ariana Grande on the Dangerous Woman Tour.

In a photo shared to Instagram, the star could be seen with her legs wrapped around Andre as they embraced one another.

Their first holiday together

Leigh-Anne and Andre jetted off for their first holiday together in June of 2017, with both of the stars finding time in their busy work schedules to enjoy some quality time.

In dreamy pics, Leigh-Anne showed off her sensational bikini body whilst posing alongside Andre, with views of sand and sea in the background.

Their first red carpet together

The loved-up pair wowed on the Brit Awards red carpet in 2018 and it was their first red carpet appearance together.

Leigh-Anne could be seen wearing a white robe-like gown, holding a white rose, whilst Andre looked suave in all black.

They move in together

In December 2018, the adorable couple decided it was time to move in together. Leigh-Anne shared a photo on Christmas Day writing: “Sometimes I wish I could put it into words.. but I just can’t… I couldn’t love you anymore if I tried. First Christmas in our new home together.. Merry Christmas everyone from our family to yours.”

They celebrate their third anniversary

On 28 May 2019, Leigh-Anne and Andre celebrated their third anniversary, with the Little Mix star writing: “It doesn’t make any sense unless I’m doing it with you… My right arm, my escape from the world and my soul mate. Where the hell has 3 years gone? All I know is I’m ready for the rest of my life with you. Happy Anniversary you beautiful soul.”

Andre looked equally thrilled as he wrapped his arms around his new fiancée for the camera.

One of the pictures he shared revealed the moment he got down on one knee to propose to the singer as the scene showed Leigh-Anne sitting under a blanket with her hands covering her eyes in shock.

Andre captioned it: "Let the caption speak for itself this time," alongside a red heart emoji and a diamond ring emoji.

He added in Spanish: "Hasta la muerte," which means, "Until death".

Celebrity friends of the couple were quick to offer their congratulations as Love Island star Josh Denzel replied: "Mad mad mad CONGRATULATIONS bro," [sic] with a fire emoji.
